“In 1996 my dad gave me my first camera. The same time a friend of mine gave me his sister's drum set. From then on I have been taking pictures and playing music constantly. Professionally, I have been working as photographer since 2001 and as a drummer... well, basically never. Maybe a year or so. At the same time I was in love with skateboarding and snowboarding. What you see here is a sample of my everyday life.” – Theo Vranas
